“La Red De Cultivadores” (Food Growers Network) converts vacant lot into Micro Farm in South L.A.
The $25,000 will enable the community to complete the conversion of the vacant lot. Community members and agency partners have secured $35,000 for soil remediation, removal of gravel, acquiring mulch, and materials to build beds, purchase storage units and water line installation. The remaining needs include fencing, drip irrigation, lighting, and electricity. The community members input from several meetings require a thoughtful design which incorporates educational workshop area for trainings with children youth and adults. We want to incorporate green space for forums and gatherings with partners in the area. Our design includes a kitchen food preparation area for cooking classes, nutrition education, sharing recipes, and farm to table potlucks. In addition the design would include a food stand area for various food distribution and harvesting activities.
